The mechanisms involved in renal ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) are complex and appear to involve the early participation of bone marrow-derived cells. T lymphocytes participate in the pathogenesis of IRI. Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) induces peripheral T cell depletion. Therefore, we hypothesized that S1P1 receptor activation protects kidney from IRI.(More)
BACKGROUND Dietary isothiocyanates (ITCs) are electrophilic compounds that have diverse biological activities including induction of apoptosis and effects on cell cycle. They protect against experimental carcinogenesis in animals, an activity believed to result from the transcriptional induction of "Phase 2" enzymes. The molecular mechanism of action of(More)
